    Question The TRUE Face of the all NEW 2018 Jeep JL Wrangler

    ...or, at least that what's Autoblog is reporting. Supposedly, this image comes from a poster at a Jeep dealer meeting highlighting the 2018 lineup. What do you think?

    These images come from a purported Jeep dealer meeting and show a poster detailing the brand's future lineup. Along with a look at the range-topping Grand Wagoneer, we can see the next-generation Wrangler, code-named JL, and its updated design front and rear.

    To the surprise of no one, the Wrangler will keep its seven-slot grille and round headlights. To those it adds some modern updates, like the LED light bars on the leading edge of the front fenders. (Given the 2017 LED headlight upgrade, we can bet the low- and high-beams also will use LED tech.) The taillights get an X design like those on the Renegade crossover. The overall shape seems to be a bit more tapered and smoothed, which is most evident in the shape of the sides of the windshield. We know from spy photos that the windshield has been laid back more, likely leading to improved aerodynamics and reduced fuel consumption.

    As a refresher, we expect the 2018 Wrangler to again come in two-door and Unlimited four-door models. It will have at least one gas engine, including a new turbocharged Hurricane four-cylinder, as well as a diesel option. Most if not all of the engines will be paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission, and a manual is likely to be retained on at least some models. A pickup version has also been confirmed. The new Wrangler is likely to be shown in early 2017, possibly at the Detroit auto show in January.

    And finally, here are some shots of a scale model of the JL or at least, a version of it.

    Apparently I haven't stared at my JK long enough. It looks identical.

    Are those LED DRLs in the fenders I'm assuming?

    In my opinion, I've never been a fan of those.

    Well, with the exception of the indicator lights being on the fenders again like the old TJ, it really does look just like a JK.

    Looks that way. Being that I'd end up trimming my fenders, they'll be one of the first things to go. Guess I'll have to start looking into relocating some lights onto the grill

    I noticed those lights first too. I don't like them. I would like to see the tail lights though. My wife and I were just talking about renegade tail lights on a wrangler. Not sure if it would look good or not.

    Sorry, non-JL question. Is that a grand wagoneer to the far right? It sure looks a hell of a lot wider than a grand cherokee.

    The grill slots look much bigger.

    Grand Wagoneer, it's massive!
